Right now I have it set up so groups are 'Private' in OG 7.2.x on D7
When using og_extras there is a view that lists the 'Groups'. However, when they are set to private, because the og permissions module is enabled, the groups do not show when an anonymous user acceses the page.
With the correct permissions, non-members can request access to groups, and a URL like this will let users join a Private Group:
Now, the BIG QUESTION:
How can I get views to show the Group name, Group Description, 'Private', and 'Request Access links' in a public facing view, yet have the content/members of the group be private?
It seems like the idea of a 'Private Group' is that people can't even see the name of it. That assumption is irrelevant to my site, I just want them to not be able to access the groups homepage/content unless they are members, I want them to see the groups they 'could be a part of'.
Thanks! And apologies if this was too indirect.
